I came across a group of microwave snack recipes, and decided to try one; Cinnamon Bun Cake.
Whenever I try out a new recipe, I line up the ingredients, so I can be sure I have everything. Well, I didn't. I don't have buttermilk, so I decided to try regular milk. Uh, oh. No brown sugar, This may stop me fast.
But wait! I have molasses, and sugar. I know that's all brown sugar is, so if I can find the right formula, I'm good.
Everything else seems OK. Oops, applesauce. Hmm, doing my Pooh impression. (Think, think, think)
We do have apples. I wonder if I can just puree one. Well, I tried it, and the results looked right.
In separate cups, I mixed the dry and the wet/damp ingredients, then combined them.
The recipe calls for microwaving everything for one minute, and that's exactly what I did.
I let it cool for a few minutes, then tried it. Delicious!
The texture wasn't quite right, but the taste was wonderful!
Next time I try this (And there WILL be a next time.) I think I'll microwave it a bit longer, maybe 5 seconds more. I know microwave ovens vary, so it's just a matter of dialing in the right time.
But the taste! This is absolutely a keeper.
